Protection Technology: Vendor Selection & Nightmare Avoidance Paperback – July 13, 2017

In today’s world, threats from organized terrorists, lone-wolf actors and the “ordinary” criminal element readily pose a clear and present danger to ourselves, loved-ones, friends and associates. Daily, the newspapers are filled with stories from around the globe detailing horrific acts perpetrated against civilians to further religious, political or economic goals. Unfortunately, this is our reality. We as a society in general must take steps to protect both ourselves and family from those wishing to cause us harm. Yes, sounds simple and it is an absolute given. Let’s take it a step further. In addition to responsibilities for our family, we are in a responsible charge position at work. Whether a property manager, board member, property owner, security director or any similar title, we are also responsible for the protection of our respective property. This publication provides a cradle-to-grave, systematic procedure you can initiate in order to protect the properties and facilities under your control. This time-proven methodology has been a proprietary process I have utilized since my consulting practice was established back in 1987. Our process begins with an overview of the current threats, moves through our legal obligations, continues with a vulnerability assessment for your particular property, streamlines the development of the request for proposals and ends with the final phase of project management. This publication is intended to help the reader not only protect their properties but deal more effectively with contractors. Included are real-life pitfalls and project disasters I have witnessed first-hand.
